China bronze Halberd blade, 400 BC to AD 200

Halberd blades to attached to long poles and used as a pole axe type weapon.

Dynasty : Later Zhou (Warring states) to Han.

This form of Halberd blade could have been made during either period and it is not really possible to be certain if any given example is from the Zhou (prior to 255 BC) Chin (255 to 205 BC) or the Han Dynasty (205 BC to 220 AD).

There are some numismatists who consider halberd blades to have been used as a form of early currency in China, so we have included this in the Chinese money heading.  Aside from that almost anything made of bronze might have been used as a form of primative money in early China, I have seen nothing to suggest these were actually used as such.

Date : anytime from 400 BC to AD 100.

Size : 171 mm long on the blade and tang, 94 mm across the upright.

Weight : 132 grams.

Condition : The form is intact but there is very minor corrsion around the edges, and some light corrosion on the surfaces.
